I don't think I said that. I was only surprised that the fix was so
complicated. :)

The problem still exists in the current master: If the server is started
in a non-XDG environment then it will create its socket in /tmp, and an
emacsclient started in an XDG environment won't find the socket.

In my original report I had suggested:

|   under XDG_RUNTIME_DIR.

I have tested the patch at
and the client falls back to /tmp as it should.
